Kent

Recommended Posts

Since others had asked to see more pictures, I thought I'd point it out. It is probably about as clean as it will ever be, since I was getting ready for the NE show tomorrow. I'm taking my digital camera to the show, and hope to get lots of pictures of people and tractors.... Time for bed -- big day tomorrow! Kent PS... Roy -- do you approve of the license plate?[A href='http://www.simpletractors.com/gallery/big_ten_deluxe.htm'][img src='http://www.simpletractors.com/images/big10_delux/Dcp00292_small.jpg'][/a]

Were those bar tires on the front, or am I seeing things? Nice work! Nice cutom touches too, and the addition of a little dirt won't hurt a thing. SmilinSam

Yes, they're bar tires. I really like them so far -- they really "cut" sharp when you turn the steering wheel. I wanted them for using the snow/dozer blade -- it pushes the front end sideways....

Kent, The license tag is "spot on". A perfect "T". Glad to see part of you is still with Tennessee. The tractor is damn nice also. You do good work. Roy

Hey Kent, the tractor looks like a nice work horse. I hate to sound picky, but why are the front tires on backward, in a hurry perhaps? Just giving ya a hard time 8> Looks good

Wally, They are turned that way so that the ends of the lugs bite first, to help steering. These Armstrong tires are clearly marked with arrows pointing showing which way they should turn. "Traction" arrow points one way, and "Rolling Wheel" points the way they are mounted. I haven't tried them the other way, but they certainly bite when steering -- compared to my longer B-210 with turf tires, this one drives like a sports car.... I wanted sideways traction to help steering when using a plow or snowblower -- I even loaded then with windshield washer fluid to help.... Kent

Just giving you a hard time Kent. I grew up on a farm, we never had a FWA tractor but I worked at an Implement dealer and worked on FWA tractors and used a articulated Case on my friends farm. I will change your front tires any day instead of the ones on the Case. Windshield washer fluid works really well, keeps the inside of the tires bug free and clean. Wally

The front tires are like that because the power is being transferred from the ground to the tires, intead of the tires to the ground like on the rear. Jordan

Wally, Can you tell me how to turn the inner tubes inside out without damaging them, so I can check for bugs? I bought new ones (they cost almost as much as the tires), and I don't want to mess them up? ;<) Kent

Kent you need someone with really small hand to reach in through the valve stem and turn the tube inside out. 8>)
